Tearing down the barriers of extreme metal limitations, CODE have taken a daring plunge into the unknown following their urge for further unhampered expression, and have delivered a dynamic progressive post-rock album that is sure to cause a stir.
On the new release, the band commented: "mut is the sound of us as a band freeing ourselves not just from the confines of what CODE is, but from genre conventions of any description. The time for conforming has past and we have created an album that is the purest distillation of our creative ambition. This is the first time in the history of the band that we have created music with no reference points and as a result, this is our most stark, intimate and emotional album".
"mut" was recorded in the famed Brighton Electric Studios (The Cure, Foals, Nick Cave, Royal Blood) with engineer and producer Paul 'Win' Winstanley. Cover artwork and layout have been created by the Austrian designer Thomas Neulinger.
CODE begun life in London in 2002 and have developed a reputation for delivering some of the most fresh and innovative progressive black metal around with their previous three albums; the debut "Nouveau Gloaming" (2005), the Spellemann award nominated "Resplendent Grotesque" (2009) and the acclaimed "Augur Nox" (2013).
